PLANNING A TRIP TO TORRES DEL PAINE PATAGONIA
Patagonia had been on my bucket list from the moment I learned it existed. Acres of unspoiled nature, the famous towers, wild puma, glacial lakes, and herds of Guanaco. The remote location of Torres del Paine makes it difficult to get to, and therefore it is not a popular destination of tourists or locals – but a dream of many avid hikers and people who love the great outdoors.
You’ll see as soon as you start researching this destination that visiting this part of southern Chile requires a lot of careful planning. There are some key things I learned that I can share with you to help make your trip to Torres del Paine perfect, from what to pack to where to stay, to how to get around!
Outside-The-Box Shortlist: Munich
I spent only ten weeks of 2017 in Manhattan where I live; the rest scattered in thirty-four other countries across the globe.
Ten Photos to Inspire You to Travel To Albania
City guides can be overwhelming and packed with too many recommendations. Here's an outside-the-box shortlist with just six recommendations for where and what to stay, eat, shop, see, do, and be entertained while in Munich, Germany.
The Cutest Town In France
I've been to twenty-nine countries in Europe, from Germany to Gibraltar to Luxembourg.. But this year, I went to the European country you've probably never heard of - Albania.
Yodel-Ay-He-Who? Alpine Vibes In Albania
Every corner and street became more scenic as we wandered. Charcuterie shops, ice cream stands, and crêperies, were scattered between the shops selling red ceramic dishes and mugs painted with sheep and phrases like “I went to Alsace and thought of my Papa.”
The Hidden Gem I (Almost Don't) Want to Share
When we arrived in Valbona, it looked more like Switzerland. Alpine architecture, red-and-white checked tablecloths, sky-high evergreens! I took a deep breath, and then another, and another; there are few feels as satisfying as the freshness of the mountain air filling your lungs. Especially for a city-dweller.
Ultimate Guide to London
The roots of Qeparo are a thousand years old. To the experienced traveler, the village is a mix of England's Cotswold, France's Le Baux, and Greece's Oia. Everything from the roads to the houses is made from golden stone. Some walls are whitewashed and doors are painted vibrant blue with donkeys tied up outside them. Thick vines form archways dripping with grapes and the views of the valley from the ends of alleys are breathtaking.
A Slice of Key West Life
I lived in London for a year and it became one of my favorite cities in the world. Whether it’s from the sight of Big Ben, or your first taste of sticky toffee pudding, or the way you overhear someone pronounce the word controversy - this city will make you smile. Here is my ultimate guide for exploring.

The slice appeared, a mile of key lime custard, piled with fluffy whipped cream, and sprinkled with extra graham cracker crumbs! It was like they could see into my soul.
Why You Must Visit Tulum
Ever wonder what it's like to spend a day on safari? Here's a look inside my journal during my recent trip to Kanha National Park on my first TIGER safari in India!
Ubud Travel Guide: Four Magic Days
You don't often hear about The Yucatan Peninsula being on anyone's bucket list place. But after my weekend in Tulum, I think it should be on the top of the list for anyone looking for culture, adventure. and a small, cool beach town. If you’re not interested in passing the day away in a hammock with a cold coconut and good book, extraordinary Mayan Ruins and several fresh-water cenotes are just a short drive from the main town. Every resort on the beach offers kite-surfing lessons, and yoga classes throughout the day, and the main road has shops full of unique goods from local designers. It's baby Bali, only three hours from Manhattan!
Tips for Planning Your First Trip to Bali
Ubud is why you travel to Bali. Rice terraces, ancient temples, volcanos, a jungle full of wild monkeys, streets lined with yoga studios, spas, and healthy restaurants serving the most delicious and beautiful food you could imagine. Right in the middle of the island, I consider Ubud Bali's beating heart. Ubud is relaxed, unpretentious, and chaotically beautiful. This is not a place to party - it’s a place to meditate, contemplate, grow, explore, and learn.
Sunrise Hiking Up Mount Batur in Bali
I took this trip with my best friend! We came to experience the culture, have some beach time, and immerse ourselves in all things Indonesian. We didn't come to surf, and we definitely didn't come to party. Our ideal evening consists of an amazing dinner, long walk, and a trip to an ice cream spot. So if that’s the kind of experience you want - then here’s my thoughts on the places I saw, what I’d recommend, and what I’d avoid.

Iceland's Blue Lagoon 101
I believe it's important to plan your travel thoughtfully. Instead of just using your two weeks to fly to a resort where your friends have recently gone, or to a place you saw in a magazine - consider what are you wanting to achieve over your lifetime of vacation days. There are all different types of trips to take, so here are ideas that will lead to you being a more well-rounded traveler and provide some experiences you may never have thought about having.
